Case Study: Johnson Space Center

Custom work is our specialty, but it’s our people and attention to detail that makes us special.

PROJECT REQUIREMENTS

  • Provide a makeup air unit producing 25,000 cfm at 12-1/2 in. w.c.
  • Provide a filtration unit producing 50,000 cfm at 29 in. w.c.
  • Both units provided with four levels of filtration, including carbon and HEPA style filters.
  • Low leakage air handlers were required to assist in achieving Class 100 at 0.12 microns while also meeting NASA’s molecular contamination requirements.

MARCRAFT’s TRUCustom™ SOLUTION

MarCraft engineered and built the custom air handling units to meet the stringent specifications using four inch double-wall Reverse Panel™ construction. Our units achieved less than 1% air leakage and met the deflection criteria at the high design pressures required. A continuously welded HEPA filter frame also prevented bypass of partulate around filters.

RESULTS

MarCraft’s TRUCustom™ units are helping to further the James Webb Space Telescope’s exploration of our universe.
